    It’s a work vehicle, I was thinking of buying one myself, but I'm so disappointed with the fuel economy. Even without towing, you would struggle to get 30mpg and that’s driving gently! When towing, it’s 20mpg! The positives are that it's really smooth on the road and tracks! But trying to get it into reverse is another thing, might get better with time! They could give me back the Ford Ranger anyday!

    Tell us what you think about your car?
    Very useful vehicle, but the electronic engagement of 4WD is prone to problems after 4-5 years. The earth connection above the gearbox can be affected by corrosion and there is no way to get there without removing the gearbox, and Toyota declines warranty claims for this
    What's the one thing you like most about your car?
    everything apart from electronic 4WD switch
    If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
    Option of manual transfer case
